    I signed up for another half-marathon so I have a training plan to follow and I am being diligent with my water consumption – I find drinking my water through a straw makes it easier :)

    Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway and for opening it up to us Canadians!

    I’ve been doing relaxation meditations, focusing on breath, and I’ve been practicing mindfulness. Both help to improve my health and happiness. :)

    I’ve been focusing on eating healthy foods make me happy while I’m eating them AND keep me feeling satisfied instead of just eating junk food for quick energy when I’m busy at work.

  10. Ashley — October 21, 2011 at 6:57 pm (#

    I’ve been gradually increasing the amount of water I drink every day, and I’ve been using Livestrong’s Loop tool to better measure the mileage I have been running.

  11. Lisa @ Fit in the Midwest — October 21, 2011 at 7:03 pm (#

    1. I have been cooking healthy meals for my husband and I. I always eat healthy, but I want him to adopt healthier eating habits, so I have been cooking meals we both can bring leftovers of for our work lunches.
    2. Instead of a second cup of coffee every day, I’ve been drinking more herbal teas.

  16. Michele Sparrow — October 21, 2011 at 7:10 pm (#

    I eat my cruciferous, liver loving veggies every day, i.e., cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, etc., a healthy serving of nutritional yeast daily, a green smoothie and stevia in place of all sugar!

  17. Gretchen — October 21, 2011 at 7:32 pm (#

    Tip #1 – is listening to my body tell me when it’s really hungry and not following a schedule of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I find now I don’t have lunch until 2 and then OK with a 6pm dinner. I take air popped plain popcorn in my car with me for a snack or something else healthy. Try to cut back on sugar – and have nothing with sugar till after dinner and when i do in moderation. And I always have 1 or 2 glasses or bottles of water in the car. I buy a case at Costco.
    Tip #2 – I switched up my workout to spinning 5 days a week – and incorporated more stretching. And I feel so great and energetic!
    Bonus tip – is I love listening to http://www.hayhouseradio.com. They have a wonderful medical intuitive – Caroline Sutherland who gives great advice on eating and taking care of your self. The shows are archived for a few days too – so if you miss it you can relisten later – and it’s free.

    #1 ‘Ice cream’ made from pureed frozen banana chunks has been an obsession of mine lately. So good!
    #2 Get at least 20 min of exercise a day, even if it’s just walking. Switch it up every day to make it fun, and don’t stress out about it. For me, it’s such a mood booster during these cold winter months.

  22. Erin — October 21, 2011 at 8:15 pm (#

    keeping a healthy life style is hard, especially at this time of year. when the weather is colder it makes it hard for me to get outside for a run. There is also every type of sugary sweet treat around which can be sooo hard to pass up. So some things i have been doing to stay healthy are: going to yoga and Zumba classes, choosing fruit over candy or treats, and in general eating healthier foods with lots of veggies and whole grains.
    I would love having a pedometer because I live in a rural area where our cross country practices are through forests or small trails where it is hard to measure the distance. Tea is my favorite drink:) and i would buy some new running shoes with the visa to replace my ones with holes in the toes that i use for volley ball, zumba, track, and cross country:)
    I love your blog I have been reading it for a little over a year now and its quite inspiring to me as a high school student.
    thanks- Erin

    My two tips that have helped me this fall:
    1. Get up and get some exercise first thing in the morning, even if its only 15 minutes. You can always do more later.

    2. Drink LOTS of water, tea, and coffee. Every day. All day.

  24. tea-bag — October 21, 2011 at 10:32 pm (#

    1. food prep up the wazoo! that way i don’t ever have to rely on unhealthy campus options!
    2. i refused to purchase a parking permit – saved me money and forces me to walk a ton each day!

    I’ve been keeping a food diary to get more conscious of what I’m eating (those nibbles here and there are easy to forget). I’m also cutting back on my smoking (yeah I know)

    I have been adding a teaspoon of ground flaxseeds to my oats every morning and I make sure that I’m taking my vitamin D supplement as the days are getting darker and I don’t get enough sunlight. xx

  36. Veronica — October 22, 2011 at 6:18 am (#

    1. I have been walking 3 miles 3 or 4 times a week weather permitting. Need to enjoy the fresh air before the snow comes!

    2. On my off days I practice yoga for up to an hour and a half.

    3. Everyday that I can, I have a smoothie with cashew milk, bananas, blueberries, chia seeds, hemp nuts and anything else healthy I can throw in.

  37. Stacey — October 22, 2011 at 6:27 am (#

    To stay healthy, I’m doing a detox (eating clean and using Repairvite) and training for a half marathon in January! That’s keeping me motivated to exercise.

    I have been drinking a lot more tea. The real stuff, not the stuff from the bottle. It keeps me warm in the colder months, and I drink it after supper. It has actully curbed my snackiness in the evening after I’ve already eaten. The other fall fitness thing I’ve been doing is taking the dog running outside. In the summer he doesn’t like to run outside, and when it is hot and humid neither do I! The fall is the perfect time for this.

    Hey Averie! I haven’t stopped by in a bit but I guess this is a great time to post! Awesome giveaway!!

    Here are my two tips
    1: When I make a sandwich for lunch I always cut it with 1 side larger than the other. I eat the smaller portion first and for some reason it makes my 2nd portion feel so much more filling.

    2: When you treat yourself to an unhealthy snack it’s all good! One trick for me is to not bring it in my house. The minute it’s in my house I’m going to eat it. If I go out to eat I don’t bring it back home. It’s definitely helped keep my snacking in check.

  44. Michelle — October 22, 2011 at 1:24 pm (#

    Tips: Keep the fridge fully stocked with fruits and vegetables, and essentially have them available and prepared so that there is easy access to delicious food!
    Another tip is that I keep my running shoes and workout gear in eyesight when I wake up, so I remember and keep myself motivated!

    In addition, I also have gum in my bag all the time or at my office desk! I find that gum helps when I am just craving something to chew on! :D
